Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks since my last weekly wrap-up. The holidays were of course super busy but also very fun and I enjoyed every minute of them! My mother-in-law came down to visit us for a whole week. It was such a treat! We did all sorts of fun things like go to Medieval Times, went and saw Christmas lights, went for a hike to a waterfall...such a great time.
Then, we decided it was time to adopt a new kitty. It has been over a year since I lost my precious Jax, a female tuxedo cat. I was finally ready to move on and bring a new friend home! I searched for awhile online and finally found Willow. She is a beautiful Torti, about six months old and is just precious. She sits on my lap and just purrs for hours. She was a little scared at first but is adjusting so well and her and Jensen are getting along fantastically!
I have lots of things to tell you about this week in regards to my artwork. I have a brand new painting, new product releases, new rubber stamps and a new company is licensing my artwork for tubes!
Belle - New Original Painting
I finished a brand new painting this week! Her name is Belle and she is a Christmas witch. I know it's a few weeks late, but you can appreciate Christmas year round I say! I tried my best to finish her before the season was over, but she had a lot more details in her than I had originally anticipated.
Belle is a Christmas witch riding on a candy cane through beautifully decorated evergreen trees. Belle is wearing an outfit all done in icy, blue colors. Her striped socks compliment her cute little blue corset with ruffles! She was so fun to paint and I really hope you all enjoy her. =)
She is up for sale on eBay for a 10 day auction starting at only $99.99. Thanks so much for looking at her!

Belle - New Products Released on eBay and Etsy
I have added Belle products to both my eBay and Etsy stores! She is now available on prints of all sizes, stickers, magnets, bookmarks, pocket mirrors, buttons and coloring page kits!

They will begin shipping January 16th. I have seen these stamps in person and they are truly incredible. Every little detail down to the eyelashes is depicted in the stamp. And the best part is, you can sell what you make with these as long as you follow the rules outlined in my angel policy!

Well, that's all for this week! Next week I am going to begin working on the painting for the person that won the Christmas giveaway. I won't reveal too much about what she wants except that it's a witch and her ideas are awesome! I can't wait to get started. Other than that, I will be enjoying lots of cuddle time with my new kitty, Willow. And we're supposed to be getting some snow tonight so I'm looking forward to that. I hope you all have a fantastic week! Thanks for all your support of my artwork. =)
